The Dark of My Love

Shades of death
Count the tears
Burning’ in a labyrinth
For the rest of my years

Trying to escape
Then the Black Hand
To prove against my fate
Overpowered my stand

Less the years gone
I have an eternity
Of life encased in stone

“Long shall he live,
In the minds of us all.”
But will it ever be known
The dark of my love
